Get On With It
"To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as...to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead." -Og Mandino
Most every day you get up and place yourself back into the daily routine. You get up, get dressed, get breakfast and get on the road to work. You fall in line with the other cars going to work, pulling into the parking lot and waiting in line for the elevator.
You tell yourself that there is more you want to do in life. You want to volunteer helping the needy. You want to learn a better job skill. You want to meet someone that you can share your life with. You want, you want, and you want.
But than you get back in line for the elevator, wait to pull out of the parking lot, fall in line with the other cars going home. You feed the dog, you make some dinner, watch some television, get dressed for bed and fall asleep. All in an effort to do it all over again the next day.
You intend to turn your wants into reality, but you do the same thing over and over again. You place yourself on a treadmill going slow somedays, running like mad the next, but never getting anywhere. You see the same thing over and over on the treadmill.
Maybe it is time to actually get up and do something. Maybe its time to get on with it. Get up and go after those things you want in life. No more waiting, no more planning, go now!
